        Yeah, the yellow pants — turnout clothing on a couple of them and the red vehicles were good indicators of that. I was on our local volunteer fire department for about 15 years.

          I have the greatest respect for guys like these doing a days work and prepared to stop at any given moment to go and help others.

        Although maybe you’re counting the toe of the fireman just out of the picture on the right… But it could just be an odd shoe!

          The toe was attached to another one, but you could not see him properly so I cropped him. There were more still arriving from all directions for their training session.

    GM,

    I seldom make a serious comment but today I want to tell you about a wonderful service that our local Fire Department provides.

    They know that when they have a serious house fire, the children of the family are more frightened of the firemen in their black gear and masks and tanks on their backs,etc.,. They sometimes find children under a bed or in a closet to get away from , not the fire, but the monstrous firemen.

    So, to accustom children to what a fireman will look like if he ever has to come into your home to rescue you, our wonderful volunteers visit all the elementary schools in their full rescue gear. They let the kids see what they look like under all that equipment and the fear of the fireman goes away.

    Isn’t that a great service to our community,and especially our little children?

      The firemen make regular visits to the schools throughout the year bringing a fire engine with them for the children to climb on and helmets to wear etc. They also have an open day when you can bring children to visit the fire station. The children love it and talk about the visits for weeks afterwards. It also gives an opportunity for school projects around the subject of fires and safety issues.
